Description

TechGirlz is a non-profit that provides free, hands-on technology workshops for middle school girls. We want to inspire girls to explore the possibilities of technology and hope to eventually lessen the gender disparity in the tech professions.

  • 10/17/2019 Introduction to Virtual Reality (VR) - Learn about how VR works, create 360 degree photos and code up your very own virtual world using simple JavaScript. After the workshop, you can take your Google Cardboard VR headset home and continue exploring the new frontier of VR.

  • 10/26/2019 Web Concepts - This class is a brief introduction to how websites work, how they are built, and how to become a person who builds websites. It is a lecture with interactive activities but nothing is created and no technical materials are required.

  • 11/02/2019 Designing Mobile Apps - Join us to learn the latest strategies in brainstorming and develop your abilities to outline a project concept and present it for feedback to help you make informed design decisions. Learn techniques to help you communicate a concept, create low-fidelity wireframes, user flows, prototypes and to work within a team. So bring your pencils, crayons, markers, paper, post-it notes and smartphone (if you have one) and let the fun begin!

  • 11/06/2019 Intro to C++ - Have you ever wanted to know how people create games, utilities, and apps? Well, it all begins with programming. In this workshop you will learn the basics of how to write your very own program using a language called C++! This is a great first language to learn because so many other languages are based off of it.
